Forgent creates website to manage patent litigation: Forgent Networks announced today it has added an enhanced intellectual property area to the corporate web site. The site provides information on Forgent’s intellectual property program and the litigation recently initiated against 40 technology companies for infringement of United States Patent No. 4,698,672 (the '672 Patent) in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division as well as the complaints filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.

According to Forget, the site was developed to enhance communication and improve the information flow with shareholders and interested parties about the complicated litigation process. Web site visitors can view selected court filings in a simple time line format according to the particular case. Over the last two years the intellectual property business has generated approximately $90 million from licensing the ‘672 Patent to over 30 different companies in Asia, Europe and the United States.

The company claims that the ‘672 Patent - which relates to digital image compression, and fields of use include digital still image device used to compress, store, manipulate, print or transmit digital still images such as digital cameras - extends beyond digital cameras and includes many digital still image devices such as personal digital assistants, cellular telephones, printers, scanners, and other devices used to compress, store, manipulate, print or transmit digital still images. Forgent claims the exclusive right to license and enforce all the claims under the ‘672 Patent in all fields of use involving digital still image compression.
